EMBOSS coding style

Dear developers,

Users of CVS may have noticed that a few months ago the whole
source tree was changed to reflect coding standards agreed
by the core development team. Those changes, of course, are
also in the 2.8.0 release just announced.

Apart from the obvious advantage that programmers, having become
used to the new format, will be able to read each other's code it
also enables us to write consistent documentation using code snippets.

We'd therefore appreciate it if new submissions to emboss-submit
stick to the new format.

For emacs users the file:
may be a help. The file 'c-mode.el' is in the same directory for those
systems lacking the file (put it in your site-lisp directory if so).

Thanks in advance and keep them coming.
